Women play a critical yet often overlooked role in how communities are preparing for and responding to bushfires. With climate change significantly increasing the threat of bushfires, how can we better understand, value and encourage womens’ leadership in all its forms so that all threatened communities can become bushfire adapted and resilient communities?
This panel discussion will bring together three leaders in bushfire preparedness, response and resilience to explore the unique contributions of women to bushfire resilience.
Amanda Lamont - Australasian Women in Emergencies Network (AWENetwork)
Kylee Clubb - Firesticks Alliance
Jo Dodds - Bushfire Survivors for Climate Action
